Impact of OER


Textbook costs have risen more than 88% over the last decade.  Students consistently cite the high cost of textbooks as a barrier and even choose courses based on the cost of the textbooks.  OER materials remove roadblocks that high textbook costs places on students.

Student Outcomes

OER materials give students first day access to course materials in downloadable formats to enable use on or off-line.

Faculty Flexibility

Faculty have the freedom to design and implement learning materials that can be tailored to their course and student learning outcomes and that can easily be updated, remixed, and shared.
